Rock and roll! After a quiet, peaceful weekend, I finally made it out of the house to check out a new local band. Playing late on a Sunday night, in a vast back room of a bar across the street from the old Studio 54, Maybe The Welders made their fans feel at home, as if they were entertaining us in the basement rec room of their parents' house.

Together only a few months now, this is a band that aims to please. Playing sturdy and nicely-outfitted rock and roll, the two lead singers and songwriters Greg Campbell and Declan Collins are backed by Dan Mitchell on guitar and Pitti (pronounced "Peachie") on drums.

Their songs range form ironic teasers, like "Married Men," and the manic, punk-infused "Nightlife." Although all suited up, the band knows how to let its hair down. When Greg and Declan scramble out into the audience, roll around on the floor, and howl about subjects like making babies, it's only regrettable that a larger crowd couldn't be there to share the fun.

Greg's voice, guitar, and songwriting style sound a little like a cross between David Byrne of Talking Heads days and Eddie Argos of Art Brut. Declan is slightly more subdued, focusing more on the meat of a song's chords and melody. Pitti, on drums, is both precise and fiery. He ignites the band with solid beats that do their job of gluing (welding?) the rhythm section together. - Charlotte deaver

Bio

Maybe the Welders have brought their punchy, infectious, post-punk rock to the NYC masses for a number of years. Throughout the summer of 2011, they have played festivals and events from Bushwick, Brooklyn, to Montreal and Pennsylvania, all whilst recording a handful of hot, new singles. The first of these, The Old Way, will be available for download following their Wednesday, November 9th show at Arlene's Grocery on the Lower East Side! In addition, their show-stopping standard The Point is available for download now for free, only to members of their official mailing list. See MTW website to join!

Maybe The Welders play regularly around the Northeast, as well as Brazil, where they made front-page news on their tour in the spring of 2010. Their 7 song EP, The Hot Shot EP, was released in the fall of that year, and has been selling briskly on iTunes, Amazon.com, and at their shows. Inflected with the sounds of New York's past, present, and future, Maybe the Welders are continuing their city's rich tradition wherever people crave rock and roll. Come to one of their explosive, live shows and see what the fuss is about!
